On an Enigma M4 (a 4 wheel machine), the extra wheel is not moved automatically, but can be set manually to an initial position. Furthermore the extra wheel cannot be exchanged with the other three wheels as it is a 'thin' one. The 4th wheel was supplied as a pair with an UKW. For UKWs
They can be commonly seen in heavy earth moving equipment like excavators, skids, forklifts, heavy dumper trucks, bulldozers etc. where hydraulic cylinders extend and retract as vital operational parts while the machine performs various work.
